OCTLA Top Gun Charity Awards
The OCTLA Top Gun charity awards show was one of the most incredible events we’ve ever been invited to! All attendees dressed to the nines for this beautiful gala held in Costa Mesa, CA. OCTLA held auctions to raise money for Together We Rise while honoring the best lawyers in the county.
Over 70 incredible items lined the walls of the silent auction room, like basketballs signed by Magic Johnson. Many of Orange County’s finest restaurants participated in the gala and donated to the auction.
Guests bid on vacation, spa, and wine packages to relax over the holidays. One lawyer won a trip to Walt Disney World for his client and their family, and they jumped with joy! Another attendee bid $14,000 on Super Bowl tickets to make sure his money would go to a good cause.
Following the silent auction, our executive director Gianna went onstage to thank everyone for attending the gala. Lastly, we ate dinner, participated in a live auction, and congratulated the winners of the Top Gun awards.
By the end of the gala, OCTLA raised over $200,000 for Together We Rise. Every penny of the money will go towards improving the lives of kids in foster care. We can’t thank OCTLA enough for hosting this charity event; it was a night we’ll never forget!
